Help us make Cycling Without Age Williamsburg a reality!

Cycling Without Age Williamsburg is a joint project of the Williamsburg Area Bicyclists and BikeWalk Williamsburg.   We are raising funds to purchase a trishaw in order to take elderly or disabled on free bicycle rides in the Williamsburg/Jamestown area.  We will use the Virginia Capital Trail and/or other safe routes in the area.  We will coordinate with area continuing care facilities and experienced local bicycle pilots.  

NEWS!  We met our original $12,000 goal and have ordered our trishaw!  It is expected to be delivered in late May or early June.  A Public Launch and Fundraising Event is being planned for June 12th at Billsburg Brewery!

Therefore we have decided to budget for a 2nd trishaw and have "upped" our goal to $24,000!

Cycling Without Age

 Watch this 3-minute video to get the story! 

Cycling Without Age is a movement started in 2012 by Ole Kassow. Ole wanted to help the elderly get back on their bicycles, but he had to find a solution to their limited mobility. The answer was a trishaw and he started offering free bike rides to the local nursing home residents.

He then got in touch with a civil society consultant from the City of Copenhagen, Dorthe Pedersen (now Cycling Without Age), who was intrigued by the idea and together they bought the first 5 trishaws and launched Cycling Without Age, which has now spread to all corners of Denmark, and since 2015 to another 33 countries around the world.

The guiding principles of Cycling Without Age are:

  • Generosity: Cycling Without Age is based on generosity and kindness. It starts with the obvious generous act of taking one or two elderly or less-abled people out on a bike ride. It’s a simple act that everyone can do.
  • Slowness: Slowness allows you to sense the environment, be present in the moment and it allows people you meet along the way to be curious and gain knowledge about Cycling Without Age because you make time to stop and talk.
  • Storytelling: Elderly people have so many stories that will be forgotten if we don’t reach out and listen to them. We tell stories, we listen to stories on the bike and we also document the stories when we share them via word of mouth or on social media.
  • Relationships: Cycling Without Age is about creating a multitude of new relationships: between generations, among the elderly, between pilots and passengers, nursing homes employees and family members. Relationships build trust, happiness and quality of life.
  • Without Age: Life unfolds at all ages, young and old, and can be thrilling, fun, sad, beautiful and meaningful. Cycling Without Age is about letting people age in a positive context – fully aware of the opportunities that lie ahead when interacting in their local community.
